Ya wouldn’t read about it… Rumours are swirling that Italy has offered up their historic Colosseum in Rome to Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk for their rumoured cage-fight.
Over the last couple of weeks, both rich geezers have been talking about having a UFC-style cage fight, after a bit of shit-talking between the two started online.
UFC President Dana White has made sure he’s at the forefront of the conversation, and took it upon himself to contact both billionaires separately to gauge their actual interest in the fight becoming a reality.
A couple of weeks ago, he confirmed that they’re both “dead serious” about it.
And now, shit could be getting even more serious.
According to TMZ Sports, an official from the Italian Government recently approached Zuck, offering up none other than Rome’s Colosseum for the rumoured fight between him and Musk.
Apparently, Zuck forwarded the message onto White, whose people then contacted Italian officials.
Italy’s Ministry of Culture then issued a public statement, saying: “If Zuckerberg and Musk wanted to perform in the Colosseum they would have to make a non-violent challenge.”
However, TMZ Sports has doubled down and said their sources are “scoffing at this,” and apparently the Ministry reached out “BECAUSE of the fight challenge.”
Who knows what’s going on, but the thought of seeing the two tech-moguls going at it at one of the seven wonders of the world is just too perfect to not believe.
Musk seems to be on board with the idea, tweeting: “some chance fight happens in Colosseum.”
He later shared a clip of the Life of Brian Colosseum fight scene, along with the caption: “need to work on my endurance.”
Meanwhile, our very own young Producer Mitch made the bold claim last week that he could “fold” Mark Zuckerberg if he was given the opportunity. So, The Morning Rumble enlisted the help of Dan Hooker, who’s the same weight as Zuck, to teach Mitch a lesson or two.
